Very new to doing this sort of photography, although I've been fortunate in doing some work for some fairly large business in the area. I've been doing a fair amount of homework on this topic and wanted to get your thoughts. A couple of things... 1. How are you charging for your photography? hourly / daily/ 1/2 day. 2. Are you charging a creative fee/production fees/ usage fees? 3. Do those creative fees stay fixed? 4. How do you figure out what you usage fee will be? 5. Do you also add in a per image fee? Lots of questions, but lets start with those. If you can answer just one, it would help. Here is my current situation. Just shot 24 images of interior and exterior of a major production company in DC. Images will be used for marketing from the leasing company. The production company will most certainly want a few if not all of those images too. Time spent: 3 hr drive 1hr walkaround 3hr shoot 4hr post The bill i'm sending them is going to be $1375 which at this point doesn't include any usage fees for third party. I'm billing at $125hr I don't really like this way of billing because a closer job location and fewer shots would be a lot less money in my pocket.
